Peer-Led Intervention Work to Promote Dignity

UBC Events


UBC’s Transformative Health and Justice Cluster (THJRC) is hosting a public dialogue event centered around the importance of peer-led work. This event will bring together persons with lived experience of incarceration and allies who are working towards peer-led intervention work for people incarcerated and post-incarceration through peer-led in-depth personal support, health mentorship and systems navigation. A facilitator will moderate a discussion among panelists and answer audience questions related to their respective work or engagement in this field. Representatives of Unlocking the Gates (UTG), a peer health mentorship program that provides support for people leaving incarceration across BC; a representative from Megaphone Speakers Bureau, a public awareness program connecting audiences with speakers who have lived experience of drug use and overdose prevention; and representatives of the Community Peer Education Project (sister program of the New Mexico Education Project) who use the Echo Model that provides individuals with referrals to resources in their local areas through the evidence-based model of peer support work; will be a part of the panel.
